Radiohead are set to take ‘In Rainbows’ on the road in 2008 with a huge world tour last up to six month.

According to the band’s management the dates with start in the early summer and will take in larger venues than their shows in 2006.

Bryce Edge of Courtyard Management told Billboard: "We plan to tour next year, starting in May through to probably the end of the year. With lots of holidays in that period.

"At the moment we are talking with our agents in North America and for the rest of the world, trying to get a schedule which works for the band and works financially."

However, in the past Thom Yorke has voiced his concerns, some of them environmental, about world tours.

Edge added: "He likes to do shows, but the whole business of schlepping around the world is not top of his list of favourite things to do.

"He really enjoys playing to the fans - it's just the process of how to do that which is the pain in the neck (for Yorke). They're not road dogs. They never have been."

Gigwise’s first question is – will tickets be priced the same way as ‘In Rainbows’?
